15 Deeply Romantic New Young Adult Books

25 Deeply Romantic New Young Adult BooksIs there anything more enchanting than young love? The initial sparks, the budding emotions, the exhilarating romance – we argue there’s nothing quite like it.

Young adult romance, as a genre, consistently delivers a surge of emotions, good vibes, and more often than not, a satisfyingly happy ending. However, distinguishing between young adult romances and more mature adult romances can be quite a challenge nowadays.

Once, it was simple. Young adult romances were decorated with animated, playful cover illustrations, while adult romance novels, typically more explicit, flaunted covers adorned with passionate scenes. Now, the lines have blurred, with adult romances adopting similar cover designs as their younger counterparts. This can be problematic when you’re looking for a suitable read for a teenager, or even for yourself, without the surprise of graphic, intimate scenes.

That’s where we step in. This carefully selected collection features the latest young adult romance novels, filled with genuine love stories and a general theme of happiness and fulfillment. Some are outright romantic dramas or romantic comedies, while others weave the romance subtly into an overarching plot. The titles alone often hint at the book’s tone (such as ‘Fake Dates and Mooncakes’), its situation (‘6 Times We Almost Kissed’), or even its outcome (‘Margo Zimmerman Gets the Girl’).

All the books listed here were published from the start of the year until the end of June. Immerse yourself in the beautifully complex world of young love with these 15 deeply romantic new young adult books.
